China reacts to Pelosi landing in Taiwan


The US House Speaker’s visit is a violation of the “One China” policy and the country’s sovereignty, Beijing says.

This is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-US joint communiqués. It has a severe impact on the political foundation of China-US relations, and seriously infringes upon China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The visit of the top official “undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and sends a seriously wrong signal to the separatist forces for ‘Taiwan independence,’” the ministry added, urging Washington to “not go further down the wrong and dangerous path.”

China firmly opposes and sternly condemns this, and has made serious démarche and strong protest to the United States. 

Pelosi touched down on the island late on Tuesday despite repeated warnings from Beijing against the visit.
